Blizzard released 2 official previews of the Patch 4.2 Raid and Patch 4.2 Daily Quests Area! We finally have a decent idea of what to expect there and seeing the zones (and Ragnaros :D) outside of the datamining environment is refreshing. If you missed the earlier previews, don't hesitate to check them out!

    WOAW

    Now I get the Ragnaros Model, awesome!

    The rest looks amazing. Patrols, non-linear trash, hanging spider boss (made me decide to renew sub when this hits xD) and just the overall looks of it. Can't wait!

    Reminds me of the world you see when you step through one of the gateways in Oblivion.

    Wait, out this soon? I knew they had intended to put it out right after 4.1, but this leads to some confusion.

    1) If they put it out in a month, or even two, why not bundle it with 4.1's content and flood the playerbase with all sorts of new stuff to keep us busy for a long time?
    2) If they put it out in more than two months (what I was expecting) then these previews are just really early.
    3) Did they put out 4.1 to test balance changes, in preparation for further balancing of 4.2? Do they want to have balance juuuuuust right for Firelands? Is this Ulduar 2.0, but they want to avoid the raiding problems of Ulduar's timing?

    4) Am I looking way too much into this? Most likely. Looks great though, from any perspective.

    Ragnaros looks seriously badass with animations and particle effects. Seriously. Can't imagine why we doubted him.

    They want us to have something to look forward to and feel aniticipated about. Also ZA/ZG would have been forgotten and ignored by the players if they released all at the same time .
